House introduces bill merging two high-profile measures to combat military sexual assault


Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON – House lawmakers introduced a bill Wednesday that combines two high-profile measures to combat military sexual assault and harassment.

The new legislation would remove the decision to prosecute serious crimes in the military from the chain of command. Instead, the decision would fall to trained, independent military prosecutors. This would apply to non-military, felony-level crimes, such as murder, rape, domestic violence and sexual assault.
